We've been hearing about Revenant, Apex Legends' supposed new character, for a while now, and while Respawn did end up adding it to the game, it was as the mastermind behind Shadowfall. Now, however, we've got a few more hints.

Of course, data files can be a chaotic playground, but miners have been sifting through them for a while so they've got a good idea of impending Apex Legends additions. 

Popular miner That1MiningGuy posted his latest findings recently, where he found audio files belonging to Revenant's "Mark for Death" skill. 

Now, a lot has been said about Revenant since his Shadowfall appearance, and this includes a few versions of what were said to be his skills. 

This is where things get a bit complicated because there were rumours of Revenant coming as a character that's more complex than the rest of the Apex Legends roster - sort of high-skill high-reward. 

Other Apex Legends leaks had him in the standard 3-skill character, whose abilities are best described as a cross between an ulted Bloodhound and Bangalore. 

It appears that the version of Revenant headed our has nothing to do with the previous leaks, as the "Mark for Death" skill clearly shows. 

With Mirage's Holo-Day Bash and Winter Express in full swing, Respawn are clearly laying the groundwork for the next round of novelties. Naturally, we can't say anything with certainty, but for now Revenant seems like the most likely choice.

Most of the non-event narrative around Apex Legends these days focused on the skill-based matchmaking, which has supposedly been silently tweaked, and the muzzle flash, which has been cried about for so long that other players started defending Respawn.
